"Wait up!" She turns around to reveal her brown eyes and freckles sprinkled all over her face. Woah. I try my best to smile and play it cool like she is already my friend. "Looks like we're neighbors, neighbor." She smiles. "I didn't catch your name," I say.
"I never threw it out for you to catch." Her voice sounds like soggy cereal. Not too soft, but not too crunchy either. That's a weird description.
"Well maybe you can throw it out now? I'll go first," I say, as we continue walking toward our rooms. "I'm Blake. Uh, my favorite color is dark blue, and I like to swim, but not as a sport." I pause and when she doesn't say anything, I say, "Your turn."
"Oh, I'm sorry, I spaced out," she says, blushing lightly. "Uh, I'm Eloise. Do I say my favorite color and all that?"
